My Approach

As a seasoned Licensed Mental Health Counselor with 25 years experience, I consider it an honor to journey with people through the healing process. I am passionate about seeing people set free from the wounds of the past, to find hope and healing for the future. I offer a safe, relational, caring environment where you will feel connected and validated. I have a great compassion on those who are hurting. I believe we are wounded in relationship, and it is in relationship where we find healing.

Each person is unique and deserves personalized care. I use a holistic, client-centered approach to meet the needs of each individual client. This approach includes using Biblical principles combined with therapeutic techniques such as Relational Psychotherapy, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Couples Therapy, Family Systems and EMDR (Eye Movement Disensitization Reprocessing).  I am EMDR trained.

I am also happy to work collaboratively with others who are assisting in your care such as a psychiatrist or a dietician.
